plugin development – wp.media gallery collection sometimes undefined
I have a function that includes an external image-source into the media-library (
wp-admin/upload.php), by making an ajax-call to said image-source, formatting the response appropriately and inserting each image into the library with this function:
This works really well for me – most of the time.
For whatever reason, sometimes i get this exception in the debugger and the images are not added:
jQuery.Deferred exception: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading ‘add’) TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading ‘add’) at addImages
It only happens maybe every 20th-30th reload, and even then it is not consistent. Sometimes the initial load works fine, but on loading more images it does not work, or the other way around.
I tried looking at it in the debugger, and
wp.media.frame.content.get('gallery') is fine, just
collection is undefined.
In my PHP, on
wp_enqueue_script I have
['media', 'media-grid', 'media-editor', 'media-views', 'jquery'] as dependencies, am I maybe missing one here?
But even if – why would it sometimes work on initial load but not on loading more (or vice-versa)?
